The competence center synthesis successfully brings together the expertise of researchers both from industry and
academia across project boundaries. For the challenges associated with heavily interdisciplinary technology fields like
(Printed) Organic Electronics, this chemical know-how in close contact with individual projects and the other
competence centers is essential to long-term progress.
